Church of the Home for Saturday, August 27

Season of Creation Begins Next Week

The Season of Creation begins on September 1, the World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation, and ends on October 4, the feast of St. Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of ecology beloved by many Christian denominations.

Pope Francis states that this season offers "individual believers and communities a fitting opportunity to reaffirm their personal vocation to be stewards of creation, to thank God for the wonderful handiwork which he has entrusted to our care, and to implore his help for the protection of creation as well as his pardon for the sins committed against the world in which we live."

During the COVID-19 pandemic, many have become familiar with the concept of being muted in conversations. Many voices are muted in public discourse around climate change and the ethics of Earth-keeping.

These are voices of those who suffer the impacts of climate change. These are voices of people who hold generational wisdom about how to live gratefully within the limits of the land. These are voices of a diminishing diversity of more-than-human species. It is the voice of the Earth.

Activities for Your Church of the Home

This is an outdoor activity for Families to enjoy while thanking God for all he has created. It will have the family look closely at that creation, pray for it and pray that they themselves will value all creation and an activity (mostly for children) to remember to appreciate and care for all creation. There is a craft activity for the family to do. They can hang it in a prominent place in their home to remind them to Respect All of God's Creation.

Eating “lower on the food chain” is a powerful way to answer Pope Francis’ call to Care for Creation, and something we can all do every day. To help, here are 12 recipes for eating lower on the food chain.

An examen is a way of beholding an object or being in prayerful wonder. Through questions, you are invited to reflect on God’s presence and the goodness of that which you behold.


Join us for Mass this weekend in person at 4:00 PM on Saturday, 8:30 or 10:30 AM on Sunday, on, our YouTube channel, and our Facebook page.



How do we accept invitations from others and from God? Do we only accept invitations that are comfortable and familiar? Jesus calls us to accept his invitation to share in the meal of life with all God's people. Join Sr Marla as she reflects on this Sunday's Gospel.
